Fastest Typing Speed? - Page 3

post #21 of 57
I type up to 80 wpm but usually only around 50-70 for accuracy.

Unlike...pretty much everyone else I type two-touch style instead all ten fingers. Its different, but being able to put your entire arm into your strokes instead of just fingers really makes it comfortable.

I could never learn ten finger, but after doing it since forever the keyboard has literally become muscle memory. I am literally typing this with my eyes closed using only two fingers. And my accuracy is pretty good.

Havent played typeracer in a while but my average was between 100-110 wpm.

Good this topic was made! Because I have a question!

I have never had typing lessons, just... learned it myself.
My mom who was the fastest at typing in her class (Only does 75-80wpm tho) says I suck and am doing it wrong.

Would I benefit from taking typing lessons >.<?

Wow. I typed absolutely terribly at 44 wpm, although I went insanely fast, then slowed down. I still won the race they had.
Need to do this in the morning. I bet I'd get around 80 WPM at least.

I've done a few races but on some I noticed some really bad grammar.

Your speed: 116 wpm
Time: 0:38
Accuracy: 98.9%

For whatever reason I keep making errors on this thing.
Also it's hard to tell the difference between a comma and period with their font...

Same here. I type really, really fast, but I'm not necessarily accurate. Being tired doesn't help either.
